EverQuest: Overview of the Task System

New Task: Learn about the Task System.

The EQ Players team sheds some light on exactly how the Task System in EverQuest works for those who might not know.

Tasks are primarily used for single person quests. These are intended to be completed solo and usually have a reward of experience and coin. You cannot share tasks with other characters, though if two characters have tasks that require similar or identical things they can be completed at the same time. You can only have one task or shared task at a time. Most tasks can be obtained from taskmasters found throughout Norrath. Common locations include home cities for lower-level tasks, as well as higher-level areas like Butcherblock Mountains, Dreadlands, Overthere, Swamp of No Hope, Toxxulia Forest and more.
